Important information about Assessment Screeners An Assessment Screener is a series of validated psychometric assessment tools designed to ascertain the presence and severity of a number of common mental health problems. Our screeners range from basic ones, providing general information about a client’s mental health, to assessments for specific behavioural problems, to our more comprehensive screeners - assessing clients with multiple and complex presentations. Our assessment screeners act as a complement to other service provision and can help free up time for service providers, parents and schools alike. Our responsive assessment reports, based on validated psychometric measures, can also provide information regarding whether more extensive testing (e.g., IQ or achievement tests) is needed. The added benefit, is that our clients will have all of the information they need (in report form) in order to implement an integrated and effective care plan. The results can help to effectively direct interventions or clinical care and may also form an important part of obtaining a diagnosis and/or support funding (e.g., NDIS funding). Please note; there are natural limitations to psychometric measures with our online assessments, which means they are a screening instrument only and cannot and should not be used alone to make a mental health diagnosis. However, the scores from the assessments are an essential part of the process to obtain a diagnosis. A diagnosis is possible with the assessment results, together with a professional observation of a suitably qualified health professional (clinical psychologist, paediatrician, psychiatrist) to make a judgement regarding the appropriateness of a diagnosis. Further costs may be incurred for additional testing and assessments.
